At the End of the Day

At the end of the day…

She says:

I’m super smart Mama.
I’m so beautiful.
I love you so much.

And she smiles and laughs and is happy.

At the end of the day…

He says…
Olivia’s brain’s not bad, it’s just different. And different is fine. Different is good.
I like spending time with you too Mom.
I know you’re proud of me Mom. Geez.
He blushes humbly when I tell him he’s handsome and smart.

At the end of the day…

He says:

I love you so much Mom.
What should I get Olivia for Christmas?
Will you take my bad dreams away?
I know you’re proud of me, Mom.

Then he squeezes me so tight and gives me a big kiss.

At the end of the day…

He tells me I’m more beautiful today than yesterday.
He tells me he loves me more than I know.
He kisses me and means it.

At the end of the day…

I feel like I’ve done a good job.

I can smile and take a deep, relaxing breath.

I am loved.

At the end of the day, that’s enough.
